Reactor One exploded at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan:

(Watch at 45 seconds)

There may be a nuclear meltdown underway:

Contrary to preliminary reports, it appears that Fukushima, Japan’s Dai-ichi plant, which suffered a huge explosion hours ago after operators lost control of its chain reactions, is experiencing a reactor meltdown. While its core is still reported to be intact, this could cause much more significant long-term damage than expected.

The reports are partially based on the fact that smoke coming out of the explosion is now being described as “white smoke,” indicating, rather than a conventional fire, that the concrete surrounding the reactor is melting.

Praying for the people of Japan.
